Installing SilverStripe...

I am now running through the installation steps (this should take about 30 seconds)

If you receive a fatal error, refresh this page to continue the installation

Warning: unlink(mysite/_config.php) [function.unlink]: Permission denied in /home/cheapinj/public_html/test/install.php on line 701
* Creating 'mysite/_config.php'...
* Creating /home/cheapinj/public_html/test/mysite/_config.php
* Creating '.htaccess' file...
* Creating /home/cheapinj/public_html/test/.htaccess

Fatal error: Cannot use string offset as an array in /home/cheapinj/public_html/test/sapphire/core/i18n.php on line 1417

I have all of the requirements "green" when starting the installation and then the install hangs with the above message.
This only happens when installing on a shared server.
It installs fine without any errors on my local wamp machine.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Because of a successfull install on wamp but not live server,
I thought it probably was a server setting.
I compared the 2 phpinfo() and with trial and error found out that
the live server had register_globals set to on for whatever reason.
I'm still waiting for the administrator to turn it off.
While waiting I issued:
php_flag register_globals Off to the .htaccess file and voila.

Hope this is useful for folks experiencing the same errors.
